Default A Washington Post journalist was tortured and killed in a Saudi consulate

How will Trump respond?

“Turkey’s government has told U.S. officials that it possesses audio and video footage to corroborate its assertion that Washington Post journalist Jamal Khashoggi was murdered inside of the Saudi consulate in Istanbul, according to multiple news outlets.

The recordings show Saudi officials detaining Khashoggi before killing and dismembering him, The Washington Post reports.”

Is that some kind of double negative? You being the biggest idiot on the board referring to other people as idiots means they are smart?

Yeah, Turkey's absolutely got no high ground here.

There's just no reason for us to surrender ours. And for what?

The Saudis need to be on absolute notice that our relationship is very conditional.

Well they did not kill a permanent resident of the U.S. who happens to be a Washington Post reporter.

Yep.

Quote:
"Trump has made it clear to the Saudi royals that he doesn’t care about their human rights record. The strict application of Sharia law, which he condemns everywhere else—the stonings for adultery, the gay men tossed off buildings, the crucifixions—is not an issue. All that’s the Saudis’ business, a matter of national sovereignty. And the Pentagon has made it clear that it will back the Saudi military effort in Yemen despite many reports of Saudi atrocities."

Looks like the Trump/Saud cabal are using Donald Jr. to launch a propaganda wave:

Donald Trump Jr. on Friday promoted a smear tying Washington Post columnist Jamal Khashoggi to Osama bin Laden, retweeting a series of tweets meant to imply that the Saudi commentator, who has been missing since last week, supported Islamic terrorism.

With President Trump apparently reluctant to punish Saudi Arabia over Khashoggi’s alleged murder after he entered the Saudi embassy in Istanbul, conservative pundits have been straining to provide excuses for U.S. inaction.


Much of that effort has focused on claiming Khashoggi was a terrorist sympathizer, based on his ties to the Muslim Brotherhood and career covering terrorist groups and leaders, including Bin Laden.

MICHAEL: Where does it say that you can't kill a cop?

HAGEN: Come on, Mikey...

MICHAEL: Tom, wait a minute. I'm talking about a cop that's mixed up in drugs. I'm talking about ah... ah... a dishonest cop...a crooked cop who got mixed up in the rackets and got what was coming to him. That's a terrific story. And we have newspaper people on the pay roll, don't we, Tom? Hagen nods in the affirmative. And they might like a story like that.

HAGEN: They might, they just might...

When this story broke, the Saudi only would talk to Jared. Not our Secretary of State, not our ambassador, not even our Secretary of Defense, but Jared.
